Winners of a creative horror-writing competition, Jake and nineteen others are special guests at Grimstone Hall. The most haunted house in England is steeped in spooky legends with an unusual twist…all of the ghostly inhabitants are children. As the group are led around the house and grounds, the tour guide shares ghost stories, each more sinister than the last. Jake loves a good ghostly tale but strange apparitions and the tour guide’s weird behaviour have him on edge. Something is wrong at Grimstone Hall, very wrong indeed…
If you’re after a gripping, intriguing and suspenseful ghost story with a heart-stopping twist at the end then look no further. Chris Priestley is the master of age-appropriate frights, delivering terrifying tales, mystery and eerie goings-on whilst just about managing to not scare the living daylights out of readers.
Spanning the centuries, Seven Ghosts recounts the unnerving and creepy tales of seven children who met their end at Grimstone Hall. As different families take possession of the estate, tragedy, revenge, guilt, trickery and jealousy see various children die and their ghostly forms return to haunt the rooms and halls of the property. The interconnected stories of each ghost are delightfully chilling, spine-tinglingly good and will have those hairs on the back of the neck standing to attention.
Complimented by deliciously dark and spook-tastic artwork, this is the perfect read for Hallowe’en season or would make for an incredibly atmospheric storytelling around the campfire underneath a full moon. As with all Barrington Stoke titles the book is published using dyslexic friendly font and colours so everyone can enjoy this unsettling read. A must read for children who get their kicks from ghostly tales.
